  • Publish and deploy consumable API products.

  • View API product documentation and understand how to use the APIs.

Benefits of the Akana API Developer Portal & Marketplace

Reduce Time-to-Market

Automation is key to reducing your time-to-market. And Akana makes it easy.

That’s because the Akana portal is fully integrated with everything else in the API platform, including the Akana API gateway. This means Akana supports APIs deployed across multiple gateways. And it provides a centralized catalog of all APIs available — even APIs that aren’t deployed on Akana.

You can then use these APIs as building blocks to create specific API products, helping you to reduce time-to-market.

API Catalog

Unlock New Revenue Channels

The Akana API developer portal and marketplace makes it easy to drive API adoptions and unlock new business channels.

That’s because with Akana, you can:

  • Find the API you’re looking for.
  • Verify: Is this really the API you’re looking for?
  • Access: Manage access to live endpoints.
  • Monitor behavior through metrics, charts, and dashboards.
  • Collaborate: Allow for feedback, questions, and notifications.
  • Monetize your data by using APIs.

By choosing the Akana portal, you can create a compelling network of collaborators who — by sharing data and functionality — provide new channels for your business.

Plus, all of this is out-of-the-box in Akana. You won’t have to write a single line of code.
